ATTW @ CEA 2005: Space(s)
Deadline: 15 November 2004
The Association of Teachers of Technical Writing invites submission of
abstracts for presentations in ATTW-sponsored sessions at the College English
Association's 36th annual meeting, March 31 - April 2, 2005 in Indianapolis,
Indiana. This will be the second year ATTW has sponsored panels at CEA.
ATTW will consider submissions for presentations or panels on any topic related
to technical, business, or scientific communication. But as the CEA's
conference-wide theme this year is "Space(s)," we encourage proposals that
complement that theme.
For example, scholars in technical, scientific, and business communication
might focus on topics that address issues of spaces such as these:
* Academic spaces: the library, the classroom
* Virtual or cyberspaces: the Web, the web page, hypertext
* Disciplinary spaces: cross-disciplinary, trans-disciplinary, inter-
* Economic spaces: the workplace, the cubicle
* Environmental spaces: the moor, the sea, the national park
* Gendered spaces
* The page: negative space, document design
* Technological spaces: the laboratory, the computer desktop, the screen
* Writing spaces: the desk, the office
The deadline for proposals is 15 November 2004. Send 200-word abstracts by
email (in the body, not as an attachment) to miles.kimball at ttu.edu. Please be
sure to include the following information:
